Its hard to say that prime Shogun was a monster...we have seem glimpse of his former self in the ufc, but never the total package. I think he is done though.

Round 1. Evans starts briskly until he comes face to fist with that huge Jones reach. The Jones kicks to Evans lead knee slow him down and Jones takes the fist round

Round 2. Evans comes out and attempts a takedown - Even if he's successful, he doesn't hold control for long, especially after Jones starts landing elbows to the top of Evans head and face. Jones starts to loosen up and lands a couple more kicks and maybe a spinning elbow. Round 2 to Jones

Round 3. It's about now that Evans will realize that Jones the man is more than he can handle and he'll either attempt to launch a go-for-broke attack or (as I suspect) he'll become very defensive and try to go to a decision. Unless he's VERY lucky, the go-for-broke attack will allow Jones to take Evans down where he will be sliced open by Jones' elbows. If he tries to hide for the remainder of the fight, it will simply take longer.

Prediction - TKO win to Jones due to doctors stoppage in the third/fourth round.

I just don't see that the 5'11" tall, 75" reach of Evans is going to give Jones much trouble. If Jones doesn't win via Doctors stoppage, he chokes him out.

Just because I'm a big fan of Jones, it doesn't mean I'm not right!
I have to say this is where Karma kicked in, Aiken was fairly correct in his assessment. The fight was competitive for two rounds, Rashad broke in the third and just tried to survive the last two rounds.

So let us not just celebrate the end of Dark Knight's reign of terror over the boards let's give a hand to young Mr Aiken and his prognostication abilities. I salute and rep you Mr. Aiken.

This. Evans even said he knew he had to fight him on the inside. And yet he did precisely the opposite. Though I appreciate that game plans can fly out the window once you're in there.

Well even Rampage commented about the hands being out there. Basically he can touch your face and you still have to move forward to throw a punch. I think it really does get in your head, maybe even screws with your depth perception.

I was expecting them to kiss and make up after the fight but no such thing. I guess the beef is real. Rashad did look like he was open to an embrace but Jones just walked off.

Not the most exciting fights, but as clear a win outside a stoppage as you can get. Bones broke Rashad in the 2nd.

I think because his throws are a big threat. You have to pick your poison with this guy. Either stay on the outside and get torn apart, or get on the inside and get clinched and possibly Judo tossed.
